Body Of Light CD
Body Of Light ~ Songs Of Practice, Study and Pilgrimage
Our Price: £13.99

This album is a compilation of three types of songs. There are songs of study, which are about specific topics and contemplations. There are pilgrimage songs that come from the inspiration of staying in sacred places. Finally, there are numerous practice songs on the CD. These last songs are more atmospheric than academic. They are like improvisations on themes within the Buddhist teachings.

"As with my first album, Highland Eyes, all the music is based on study and practice within the Buddhist tradition, particularly within the Kagyu, Nyingma and Shambhala vajrayana lineages. I’ve done my best to present things well. Any errors in wording are a reflection of what I haven’t understood. I am very grateful to the kindness of my teachers, particularly Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, Khenpo Tsültrim Gyamtso Rinpoche and Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. May their wishes be fulfilled quickly and easily. May all beings attain great joy in the circle of wisdom" ~ Walker Blaine

Sacred Tibetan Chant
Sacred Tibetan Chant (audio CD)
Our Price: £14.99

The three pieces in this recording give a small but vivid insight into a world
where dedication to spiritual progress is paramount. The recitation of sacred texts follows a prescribed pattern handed down and learned
over centuries. Ritualistic observance, not entertainment, it should be noted.

The music is, none-the-less haunting, mysterious and evocative to Western ears.
We have no near equivalent. Even the stripped-down austerity of Gregorian chant
does not come close. There is something primeval, almost feral, about these sounds.

The hypnotic drone of a collective voice punctuated by the occasional cough or
plaintive sigh; the periodic cacophony of percussion and horns startling us out
of our meditative reverie; time flowing backward and forward simultaneously.

The atmosphere and production of the recording is both faithful and respectful.

Our Price: £15.99

Audio CD

Curated and edited by filmmaker Guy Maezelle (the album accompanies his documentary) this haunting album compiles rare recordings of sacred chants intoned by the late Tibetan lamaBokar Rimpoche, voiced alternately in solo, in small groups, and, most powerfully, in even more expansive ceremonial configurations. There are also tracks of Tibetan bowls, which produce soothing overtones, a spoken-word track of the lama's teachings, and a recording of a river in the Mirik forest.These 60 minutes of recorded sound are a testament to the power of chanting, and a moving tribute to a great teacher.
Tibetan Meditation Music ~ Nawang Khechog
Tibetan Meditation Music ~ Nawang Khechog
Our Price: £16.99

[CD, Import]

Grammy® Nominee, Internationally Renowned Flutist, and Former Monk Offers Tibetan Meditation Music to the World Tapping into the richness of Tibets meditation tradition, Nawang Khechog has created his most relaxing album yet - wholly focused on helping you experience inner stillness. On Tibetan Meditation Music, Nawang combines Tibetan spiritual chants with his own masterful flute compositions. The result is a soothing blend that has been embraced by many Tibetan and Korean monks, nuns, and people around the world from all walks of life - to enhance a meditative practice, or just to find a refreshing moment of pure serenity. In a unique approach on this recording, Nawang deemphasizes rhythm and uses subtle accents of vocals, bells, percussion, and Western classical instruments to enhance the calming and spacious sound of his meditative flute and Tibetan spiritual chants. As his most tranquil recording to date, Tibetan Meditation Music has a timeless quality that evokes the feeling of sitting on a Himalayan mountain, gazing into the infinite space with natural freedom and eternal peace. This is the perfect musical accompaniment for meditation, yoga, taichi, healing - and complete relaxation.

Born in Tibet, Nawang Khechog spent his earliest years as the child of nomads. In his boyhood he first learned to play the bamboo flute, an ancient instrument popular in rural villages throughout Tibet. After the brutal subjugation of Tibet by Chinese Communists in 1949, Nawang and his family escaped to India. There he studied meditation and Buddhist philosophy, a path he followed as a monk for eleven years - four of them as a hermit. In 1986, he emigrated to Australia where he first performed and his recordings achieved bestseller status. Nawang is best known for his collaborations with Kitaro, including a world tour and performances on Kitaro's Grammy-nominated Enchanted Evening and Mandala albums. His live performances with Philip Glass, Paul Winter, Laurie Anderson, Paul Simon, Natalie Merchant and Baba Olatunji have received international acclaim.
SELWA - Ani Choying Drolma
Selwa - Choying Drolma, Steve Tibbetts
Our Price: £14.99

Audio CD

SELWA marks the second pairing of fusion guitarist Steve Tibbetts with Tibetan Buddhist nun Choying Drolma. Like 1997'sCHO, SELWA is a deeply atmospheric, musically adventurous journey that remains true to the spiritual underpinnings of Drolma's practice. A monk whose resonant, mellifluous vocals evoke both the solemnity and the serenity of her chants and prayers, Drolma's singing gifts strike the listener immediately. Even more striking is how perfectly Tibbetts's percussion, effects-drenched guitar work, and production flourishes suit Drolma's voice.

Tibbetts's accompaniment is supremely sensitive, supporting and echoing Drolma's phrases and inflections with a variety of suitable instrumentation. By structuring his ambient landscapes around Drolma's melodies, he allows the spiritual essence of the music to shine through. Yet the collaboration is never lopsided: Tibbett's expansive, sonically rich impressions are as crucial to the shimmering grace of this music as Drolma's devotional chants. SELWA is an organic, fully realized work of genuine beauty.
Rain of Blessings [CD] ~ Lama Gyurme
Rain of Blessings [CD] ~ Lama Gyurme
Our Price: £14.99

The Vajrayana, or Diamond Teachings, of Tibetan Buddhism encourage the celebration of life and the ardent pursuit of enlightenment. Cutting straight to the heart of these aims areVajra chants. These deeply moving songs of healing and protection are presented here with keyboard embellishments and occasional percussion.

Tibetan Buddhist musical master Lama Gyurme and French composer Jean-Philippe Rykiel offer eight different chants (and an extra "unplugged" version of one)on this follow-up to their beloved 1996 collaboration THE LAMA'S CHANT. This time around, Rykiel's keyboards and other musical accompaniment take a more prominent role. Dramatic synthesizer chords support Gyurme's bass tones, while the gentle strums of a kora (African harp) weave in and out of almost every line. Percussion livens up the healing "Medicine Buddha Mantra" and acoustic piano shows up in "Offering Chant". While Rykiel's music is often quite moving, Gyurme's vibrant incantations feel like a rain of blessings in and of themselves.
The Mandala of the Enlightened Feminine
The Mandala of the Enlightened Feminine: Awaken the Wisdom of the Five Dakinis
Our Price: £50.00

[Audio Book] 5 CD set

The Tibetan Buddhist tradition carries exotic tales about fearless female "sky dancers" or "wisdom dakinis" who dance in limitless space and act as messengers, guides and protectors. These dakinis manifest the feminine wisdom energy that has been stripped from religions and cultures, energy that is so desperately needed in the world today. Tsultrim Allione takes you on a journey where the listener will learn how to embody the sacred energy of the five dakinis to bring strength, power and transformation to your life.

The Mandala of the Enlightened Feminine is a complete, accessible curriculum designed to support women in their pursuit of enlightenment through the dakini wisdom energies.

Audio CD - Currently Unavailable!

Innovative guitarist Steve Tibbetts accompanies Tibetan nun Choying Drolma on sporadic guitar, synthesizer and percussion on chants for meditation, spontaneous songs of realization and teremas brought back from the other world. For much of the disc he lets long silences unwind behind Drolma's resonant vocals before adding a thoughtful chord of his own or feeding back to her a processed sample of her own voice-a often, you can't tell which is which because Tibbets' contributions tilt toward the abstract. Overall the match between the collaborators strikes a good balance, such as on "Kyema Mimin," where he surprises by wrapping a multi-tracked chant in cymbal taps and drums, and on "Shengshik Pema Jungney," which Tibbetts' acoustic alchemy transports to a Gothic Christian space. ~ Bob Tarte
